Announcing the release of GBPF
After several months of development GBPF is now available for download. Licensed under the GPL, this free firewall configuration script will help you protect your network as part of a comprehensive security policy. GBPF has been tested on multiple Linux distributions and works with both 2.4 and 2.6 kernels. GBPF is more than a firewall configuration script. It also features quality-of-service (QoS) support, support for transparent squid proxying, proxy ARP and much more.
GBPF is absolutely free and is licensed under the GPL. GBPF does not require thousands of dollars of hardware or expensive support contracts and can be run on any Linux distribution with a 2.4 or newer kernel. Download it today from Sourceforge.
Part of a Comprehensive Security Policy
A firewall is a critical part of your security infrastructure but it is not the only piece. Security begins with your users and is an ongoing journey. Protecting your privacy and the privacy of your customers should be your highest priority. This goes beyond firewalls and security software. It also includes continuing education of your staff and full dislosure of your policies and procedures to your customers.
GBPF is an iptables-based firewall script designed to replace overpriced and overhyped commercial firewall solutions with a linux-based PC.
GBPF can be installed at a fraction of the cost of most commercial products with no ongoing licensing or upgrade fees.
